Good Advice to Writers: Meet Published Authors, Attend Workshops, and join a Writing Group!

On Saturday, August 15th, 2015, I had the opportunity to join some of my fellow Louisiana authors from my local chapter of Romance Writers of America:NOLA STARS and my ladies from my local chapter of Sisters in Crime: Grave Expectations on an excursion to Waskom, Texas where we met for a writers’ workshop at the Waskom Public Library. Here we met with Kellie Coates  and  Lisa Windgate.

Waskom flier,

It was a great opportunity and the fact that it was only about an hour and half away was doable. I urge fellow writers and published authors to take advantage of any opportunity to meet and greet with other authors.

I won’t go into detail about talks, but I do want to share with my readers the most important snippet of information I took from the this meeting. Don’t just be a writer, be a good writer. Take classes, join groups, attend workshops, read books, etc. You’ll be glad you did!
